Re: [Flashcoders] How to call functions in sequence

2006-01-28 Thread Mike Britton
Yes, don't think in terms of avoiding functions. If something needs to be repeated, it's a candidate for a function. Performance is important for a game, but if an app's object-orientated design makes it a millisecond slower than procedural (inline) code, that's acceptable if you get the

It's the legal issue -- this implies risk where other options don't. Personally I love AMFPHP and have never observed it blowing up; it's far faster than ColdFusion remoting in my experience. Legal issues aside, I'd go with it for enterprise-scale projects. Mike On 1/26/06, Simen Brekken

AMFPHP is really straightforward code -- any PHP programmer worth his salt could go in and fix if needed. It also keeps the option of moving to CF or Java open, since your AS2 will be the same. The project has picked up again and has been out of beta for some time. Mike

[Flashcoders] Preview window: always full screen?

2006-01-24 Thread Mike Britton
I apologize if this has been covered, but can someone tell me how to make the Flash IDE preview window launch fullscreen? I have dynamically-scaling apps I need to test without causing a resize event to trigger by making the damn window larger. This is killing me! Thanks in advance, Mike

Re: [Flashcoders] embed SWF with PHP

2006-01-17 Thread Mike Britton
Pumping the object and embed tags into a DIV's innerHTML using AJAX is one possibility. You could also write the object and embed tags with an external JavaScript. This would prevent the source from being viewed and is probably an easier option given its all on the client. It's impossible to

Nothing in particular - just a style of naming vars. I don't do it because it looks too much like PHP and I get disoriented. I recall seeing this technique used to distinguish public from private vars, but I think it went out of favor when AS2 came out. On 1/12/06, Ryan Luce [EMAIL PROTECTED]

In the past I've simulated anchors with a ScrollPane using its vPosition property and duplicated clips inside the ScrollPane. However I agree it would be nice if TextArea had the ability to anchor. You could use asfunction to control the textArea's vPosition based on a variable you pass in. The
